Meet the two newest additions to the 2018 MLB All-Star Game. After three continuous days of voting, baseball fans have decided that Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesús Aguilar and Seattle Mariners shortstop Jean Segura are worthy of making the trip to Washington DC.
Aguilar and Segura were announced as the winners of Major League Baseball’s Final Vote during Wednesday’s edition of MLB Network Tonight. Both players will now officially join their respective league’s All-Star teams for MLB’s summer showcase next Tuesday at Nationals Park.
Aguilar received 20.2 million votes, which is the second highest vote total since the Final Vote began in 2002, trailing only Justin Turner’s 20.8 million last season. Aguilar beat out Brandon Belt of the San Francisco Giants, Max Muncy of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Matt Carpenter of the St. Louis Cardinals and Trea Turner of the Washington Nationals.
Segura received 13.6 million votes, topping Andrew Benintendi of the Boston Red Sox, Giancarlo Stanton of the New York Yankees, Eddie Rosario of the Minnesota Twins and Andrelton Simmons of the Los Angeles Angels.
